Subject: One of the all time great aud recordings!
Anyone else ever note that deadheads are able clap in perfect tempo? Lovely, must-have recording...
Subject: Great Show
This was one of the best weekend's I have had.
Subject: 1st but not best
This version arrived here far ahead of the others. It is not the best one here now though and it is essentially identical to the othe Jim wise versions here including the Sir Mick transfer one.
IMO this one is the best sounding

This show was my favorite but the Sunday show was helicous as well. Concerning the latter check out Brent asserting himself, after Terrapin, the non drummers were about to walk off stage when Brent started playing "Never Trust a Woman". You could see Jerry raising his eyebrows in suprise. Also Mickey used the beam and made the air at the Greek vibrate.
As the other reviews state this show rocked from the onset. If memory serves correct there were no breaks during the first four songs and a great China/Rider to end set #1. Set # 2 feautured a unique placement of CC Rider after scarlet/Fire. Also a beautiful Estimated/ Eyes and during space Jerry and Bob sounded like a pac of humback whalescommuncating with one another!Again all heads should check out these three very enjoyable shows.
After the last night there was a zonked hippie shouting to the crowds exsisting through the Berkley Campus. He only was wearing a pair of shorts, which were pretty down short in the eighties LOL and was shouting at the top of his lungs: "F**K Led Zeplin, F**k the Who etc etc. There is only one rock band in the world, and that's the Dead!" And nobody gave him any argument.
Subject: Monster Show!!
As an aside one of the things I always loved about the Greek Theater was that the whole place was wired for sound, from the stairs to the bathrooms, so you didn't have to wait for a set break to do your business, you would not miss a note where ever you were. The Oakland Auditorium Arena was also wired in this way. Also there was a fenced in soccer field right next to the arena where Graham had set up speakers for those Heads who could not get in, a real nice gesture that some friends who had travelled over a 1,000 miles took advantage of.
Subject: just wanted to mention...
Subject: Truly Remarkable
The only thing keeping my rating at 4 is the fact that Brent is really quiet in the first set.
Subject: Great Recording
Subject: Good Lovin encore?
Subject: classic '81 show
